Review:

For a decade now, these Italian speed metal punks have been playing their own brand of crazed ‘n’ crusty warfare noise. They’ve put out two critically acclaimed albums through Hells Headbangers, 2010’s It’s Time to Face the Doomsday and 2014’s Future Decay, and now Children Of Technology return with a career-spanning collection of singles and splits. Fittingly titled Apocalyptic Compendium – 10 Years in Chaos, Noise and Warfare, this exhaustive 17-track compilation displays the band in all their ragged glory, rushing through nearly 50 minutes of pure, nitrous-infused metal punk.

A band that’s been around over ten years and I just now have heard of them…oh well, a great place to start for me, you if you’re in the same boat, or a great catch up if you’ve been a fan. Lots of power, energy, and anger from a band that obviously has a love for Motorhead and cranks things up to 1000. The songs are fast, furious and sound like a freight train running you over, but one that you chose to do it and loved every second of it. You can hear the bile spewed out and the raw sound hits you hard and fast, but damn does it feel good. People often ask what’s your favourite track on an album, on this one it’s the whole damn thing…every song is a keeper and a brutal kick in the bollocks.

And that has more than enough fire to burn down the Vatican a hundred times and still have fire to spare. Grab this, turn it up and let your ears melt and cave in your head.
